Modern Industry Link backpack is simple & streamlined

modernindustry-linkbackpack
To me the best backpack designs are simple and streamlined, like the Link backpack from Modern Industry.  Its slim, rectangular shape allows vertical stacking of contents to keep the load close to the wearer’s body, while its lay-flat zipper design opens wide for easy loading and unloading of its 21 L capacity. (In fact, these features give it quite a bit of similarity to my current favorite pack, the GORUCK GR1.) Organization features include an external zipper slash pocket and internal 15″ laptop pocket and a zipper pocket for smaller items. Made from 10.10oz Martexin Original Waxed Canvas and lined with 7 oz. cotton sailcloth, YKK waterproof zippers and aluminum hardware. Made in San Fran, USA and available in Black (pictured), Ash, Moss and Navy colors, each $255. Link over to Modern Industry for details. WARNING: Their site may contain some bad language.

    Call me old fashioned, but I find it completely unprofessional that a company would put “F#%^ the middleman” on their homepage. It is unbecoming of them and unbecoming of The Gadgeteer to promote them, no matter how good the product is.

    @Eric We didn’t notice the bad language on their site until you pointed it out. We are sorry that it offended you. I’ve added a warning to the news post so people won’t be surprised when they click through.

    @Eric and all readers of The Gadgeteer – My apologies for this. As Julie stated, I was unaware of the vulgar language on the Modern Industry homepage. I must have followed a link directly to the product page for this item. I, too, find it very disappointing that a company would use this expression, on its main page no less. It is unprofessional, distasteful and offensive and no one needs companies or anyone else using language like this, because we have too much of it in our culture already. However, I am pleased to see that as I write this comment, it appears that this language has been removed from the Modern Industry home page.
